Food & Wine Countdown: Filet of Beef

Filet of Beef by Ricky Brigante 2012 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Mini-Guide Book

Official Designation:
Seared Filet of Beef with Smashed Sweet Potatoes and Braai Sauce

Country of Origin:
South Africa

Small filet of beef covered in a tomato-based sauce and served on a smooth sweet potato puree.

Status in 2012:
It’s back! At this booth, you can also try the new spinach and paneer cheese pocket. (I plan to!)

My Review:
I really, really enjoyed this one in 2011! The beef was nicely medium and very tender. The tomato-based braai sauce is sort of like Africa’s take on BBQ sauce. Epcot’s version was sweet and spicy—but not too spicy. The only “disappointment” was that the “smashed sweet potatoes” were actually silky and pureed. Still delicious, just not what I was expecting.
